The Healthy Flavor

This granola is all about butters…peanut butter and almond butter. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but store bought granola runs at least $6 a bag for a decent blend…and even those contain added sugars and oils usually. Well, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a peanut and almond butter granola, so here you go! I also use almond flour and sliced almonds to really enhance the almond flavor and texture.

Granola

Most granolas contain oil or butter right? So, how did I obtain a buttery flavor/texture you ask?

They end up baking crispy and chewy at the same time….similar to a peanut butter cookie! Pretty amazing! This recipe is a variation of my Chocolate Cinnamon Granola.
